View Full Version : [ubuntu] fdqn hostname keeps resetting

November 25th, 2010, 05:37 PM
I have a strange problem with my hostname resetting every few minutes. My hostname was hostx.blah.com and I wanted to change it to hostx.blah.org. I made the changes to /etc/resolv.conf adding lines

search blah.org
domain blah.org

But it keeps resetting itself back to this after a few minutes

search blah.com
domain blah.com

Some software I am running on the machine includes postfix (local only) a bind server, mysql and apache. The system has a static ip and also plugged into a cable modem. I do not believe the DHCP from the cable modem is to blame but I cant be sure.
